Phil Windley (who I’m going to have to add to my aggregator) reports that he has a feed for his class syllabus either daily, weekly or monthly depending on his student’s needs. Now I know this is a college setting and that logistically there may not be a need for this in a k-12 setting. I guess I’m still amazed at the concept of supplying the information in a number of forms to a larger audience in they need or desire it.
In a meeting yesterday the supervisors were lamenting the fact that we have a couple of dozen committees running here dealing with “critical issues” that rarely communicate with each other. When I proposed the solution of creating a Committee Web log where minutes and notes for all the committees were posted that could be sortable by department AND, just for the heck of it, could also be pushed to individuals via e-mail if they so desired, everyone was like “We can do that?” and then “When can we do that?” It’s on the list for May 20, the day after the release of the new and improved Frontier/Manila product.
